, delaware, maryland, the virginia coast and even in some cases in north carolina, the storm didn't live up to its billing. it's a little weaker and a little further off the coast. that doesn't mean that we're going to include cape cod, winds could easily be 60 to 70 miles an hour. we still have hurricane warnings out there are to the cape cod area, tropical storm warnings will likely be dropped here shortly from the new jersey coast to cape may and ocean city. we haven't seen tropical storm force winds. the heaviest rain and the gustiest winds are all through the red section south of rhode island and long island. it's going to pour this evening in rhode island. out on the cape, a lot of your activities are going to be soaked and the winds are really going to begin to crank. the seas, we saw how high they were in ocean city, maryland and 14 at ocean city, maryland. we're only going to watch this storm until about 10:00 p.m. tonight around the cape and it will do a little bit of damage and our friends in canada will probably do some cleanup during the day saturday too. so we have always said
of my screen is virginia. so almost all of i-95 south of virginia would be filled up by the size of this hurricane, category 2, so it's 110 miles per hour. it was bigger than that yesterday. but still, that's still a dangerous storm. hurricane hunter aircraft still flying through the storm right now. it will continue to turn to the right. it will make a run at narangaset. will make a run at nantucket, cape cod. that will be tomorrow night at this time. right now, it's going to do a glancing blow at north carolina. what does glancing really mean? it means that we're going to pile up water along these outer banks and in many spots push that water over the top of those islands. and that could cut the islands in half. happens all the time. it also means they'll probably be water completely over all of those outer banks. that's why they evacuated those islands. that's why they did it yesterday, even though some people got in traffic jams today. larry. >> and it's only september 2nd. and september could be the worst. chad myer, always atop the scene. chad myers, our weather expert. as

the gentleman from virginia rise? >> to address the house for one minute. revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mr. moran: mr. speaker, history is instructive on almost every issue we face in this body. today's issue is whether we should take action so that the wealthiest americans don't have to pay at an income tax rate of 39.6%. so let's look back at when they were taxed at that rate during the clinton administration. well, what happened was exactly the opposite of what the republican party predicted would happen. in fact, people at that rate brought home more after-tax income than any time in american history. 22 million new jobs were created and we had record budget surplusings. in fact, at the end -- surpluses. in fact, at the end of this month we were projected to have paid off all of the debt. relieving our children and grandchildren of any of the debt that we would have otherwise burdened them with. alan greenspan was worried we didn't have enough debt, but instead we had a president who came in and in fact one of the very first things he did was

across the country. it ranges from two states, kentucky and virginia, which partly disenfranchises anyone with a felony conviction. you lose the right to vote for life in their states. you can apply for clemency and ask the governor to restore your rights. you have to go to an application procedure. it is entirely at his discretion. he decides it is to vote in his state. under some governors, that number drops precipitously. it is purely discretionary. it is entirely within the governor's control. the result is hundreds of thousands of people are disenfranchised in the states. that has a disproportionate impact on communities of color. we have been working with our partners at the naacp and the and say it -- and the aclu to change that. the results or that two states still disenfranchised anyone with a felony conviction. it will not surprise you that florida, alabama, mississippi, and arizona have permanent disenfranchisement are at least some people with criminal convictions. there has been -- i want to talk about it -- the introduction to our report. a number of these laws are firmly ro
. had he been in the eastern division of virginia and convicted of those same offenses, i suspect he could be doing 20 to life. the sentence would have been completely different. it's ironic when you look at the outcome of the few cases that have been through the military system and compare them to the outcomes in our court. i have many, many defendant who are serving many sentences in cases that didn't involve actual violence other than they were shooting r.p.g.s or other dangerous weapons over in pakistan. it's interesting when you think about it. i think the perception of the two systems have become warped. no terrorism defendant in the modern times ever got a death sentence either. the embassy bombing there's not been that when he's fighting against the tide. >> someone acquited a trial a civilian or military trial could still be detain on a military rationale. there are supreme court precedents that say there's no due process for detaining someone after acquital. if there's an independent bases for danger or something like that. i don't believe in any of those cases the executiv

massachusetts and virginia did not work out so well earlier this year. did you learn any lessons, how do you apply them, going forward? >> i am not sure that they did not work out so well. we got started late in both places. when we do mobilization, there is nobody that does it better. we have the biggest political program, ability to mobilize workers. race after race, you see that our members get energized and we can get them up to the polls. we started early enough, we are not getting into the game late, as perhaps we did in massachusetts and virginia, frankly. we will be supporting candidates who support working people, that have their record to stand on. >> other questions? >> "washington post." i wonder if you could talk about the tv ad that is coming up this weekend. this is an opportunity to inform the voters. >> this is labor day, the funding through the working people are. that is what the ad does. it says a couple of things. workers built the country, they make it run, they defend it, and we are going to work together, rather than polarizing groups. it is an attempt to define us fo

in illinois, west virginia and delaware will take office more or less immediately after votes are canvased and certified and they'll be serving in the lame-duck session. i believe that voters in those states will render a very clear judgment on this lame duck agenda by sending additional reinforcements for our side of the aisle. the campaign strategy of our friends on the other side of the aisle is crystal clear. they are not running on their legislative accomplishments because it's largely unpopular. and they are worried that voters will hold them accountable for the failure of those policies to meet their own stated goals. so they're running campaigns against the american people, some of whom are participating in the political process for the first time. and i'm talking about the tea party movement. calling some of these participants in the process guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution to redress their government on their grievances and they're deemonizing members of the tea party -- demonizing members of the tea party movement. and president obama has engaged in class wa
